The walk starts at the harbor which was developed during the second half of the 19th century. Then you walk up to Stiftsgården, the royal residence in Trondheim. We continue to the market square to take a closer look at the statue of the city’s founder, the Viking King Olav Tryggvason, which towers over this busy square. From here, you walk to Nidaros Cathedral, the national monument of Norway. We have a look around the world’s northernmost medieval cathedral before passing the old city bridge with its red gateway*. The bridge is known to the locals as “the portal of happiness” and is one of Trondheim’s most popular spots for photographing. Enjoy the view of the colorful wharves along the river Nid before we return back to the pier.
